Walsh is presenter at Chamber meeting
Kellie Walsh, executive director of Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition, spoke to the Clay County Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday. The coalition is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program. Among other things, the coalition is promoting the use of propane fuel as an alternative to gasoline. While gasoline is cheaper, many companies are using vehicles that can burn either gasoline or propane, and there are about 100 propane-fueled buses in Indiana. Some school corporations are planning to replace their gasoline-fueled buses with propane buses as older buses are retired. From 2012 to 2016, the number of public natural gas fueling stations has increased from seven to 26, Walsh said.
